Coronado Historical Association

The Coronado Historical Association is proud to present Uprooted: The Story of the Japanese Americans of Coronado. From immigration in the early 20th century to internment during World War II and post-war resettlement, Uprooted traces the stories of Japanese American families in Coronado. Visit the exhibit to explore the influence of Japanese-style landscape arts in American society through gardens such as Coronado's Japanese Tea Garden. Exhibit programming throughout Spring 2022 will include conversations with local Japanese American community members, special lectures about Japanese-style gardens, and even a film screening. Be sure to check the calendar for upcoming exhibit events and follow us on social media for schedules and updates.

The exhibit is presented in partnership with the Japanese American Historical Society of San Diego and the Japanese Friendship Garden in Balboa Park. 

The Galleries are open Tuesday - Friday from 11 am - 4 pm and Saturday & Sunday from 11 am - 3 pm.
